Fodor's Review

After many years of success operating a tiny and chaotic Thai snack bar, Bird's proprietors expanded and opened this expansive 100-seat restaurant across the street from the original (at Zeedijk 77). The new space is filled with chunky teak furnishings and paintings imported from Thailand, while the snackbar is more utilitarian. The large menu of Thai standards–-including some very good vegetarian options–-doesn't hold many surprises but everything's fresh and tasty; diners often rate Bird as the best Thai in town, and there are lines most nights. The best tables for savoring such dishes as coconut-chicken soup with lemongrass followed by fruity curry with mixed seafood—are at the back of the restaurant overlooking the canal.
